The 2020 Census data collection will begin in mid-March. Data collected in the census will inform the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for things like infrastructure, health care, and food assistance. It is important that everyone respond to the 2020 Census.
Direct federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services; help communities prepare to meet transportation and emergency readiness needs; and determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and political representation at all levels of government. The census is so important that every household’s response is required by law, and answers are kept confidential. Every household will have the option to respond online, by mail, or by phone. Data will be collected face-to-face from those who do not or cannot respond in another way. More information is available at https://2020census.gov/.
There are free meals available for children 18 years and younger throughout the summer months, CLICK HERE to find locations.
Clermont County 4-H teens, Ethan Pfankuch and Luke Uhlenbrock are making a change in their communities through innovation and leadership. Thanks to a partnership between 4‑H and Microsoft, youth can lead positive change in a digital-driven world. Our 4-H Tech ChangeMakers enjoyed spending time at Bethel Woods and Miami Township Lifelong Learning Centers engaging with older adults and helping them navigate technology. During their visit the Tech Teens answered questions and guided discussion regarding cell phones. They are looking forward to follow-up visits later this summer and fall.
